Reference: West AB et al.(2007) Parkinsons disease-associated mutations in LRRK2 link enhanced GTP-binding and kinase activities to neuronal toxicity. Hum. Mol. Genet. 16: 223-232 [PMID: 17200152]

Interaction Information:

Comment WT-LRRK2 and G2385R PD-linked mutation result in comparable cell toxicity. In contrast, PD-linked LRRK2 mutations Y1699C, G2019S and I2020T resulted in dramatic neurotoxicity 72 h post-transfection, suggesting that LRRK2 kinase activity is required for neurotoxicity.
